We are heading down to Utah this weekend for grandma's funeral, and the little Bauer pup will be joining us. He has been doing really well with his potty training. We hung a bell on the door that he pretty consistently rings when he needs to go. He is 8 weeks old now, and supposedly puppies aren't supposed to have complete control over their bladder until they are 6 months... but i'm sure he will have it down before then. It just makes me nervous bringing him over to other people's houses, because I'll feel so bad if he pees on their carpet! but I am excited for the fams to meet him.

This is his little toy bucket we got him at the dollar store. He kept jumping out of it, so it was hard to take this pic.

Our family beach house

Apparently my parents are going to start renting it out to people who want to spend a vacation there. So they have redecorated, and updated a lot of things. It looks GREAT!! :)

I can't wait to go back this summer!! wooohoo!

Here's Bauer! He is such a cutie. When we first got him he was really timid and shy, but today he started to open up. He would follow us around EVERYWHERE and kept trying to nibble at our toes and fingers. As our neighbor Carley says 20 min of puppy play = 2 hours of puppy sleep, and she was right! He's been sleeping about 18 hours a day. He keeps finding the wierdest places to fall asleep. like right now he is sleeping in Jared's closet with his head resting on his tennis shoes. Earlier today we found him asleep in the crack of the couch underneath a pillow! He's been doing very good with his crate training, we only put him in when we are going to bed at night, and when we leave the house. but so far, so good! Here are some pics Jared's friend took... ill put more up later.

We got a puppy!! Well, sorta. we drove 2 hours away to a breeder in western idaho... picked out the puppy we wanted, and then put down a reservation deposit. The pup is only six weeks old, so we dont get to pick him up for another week and a half (after all of the shots and heart worm medication) We were going to get one in utah, but it got sold before we could get there. Golden Retriever puppies get sold so quickly! They are the ultimate family dog. but im glad the pup in utah fell through, because the pup we chose is the cutest little golden retriever EVER! I know I know, golden retrievers are big and shed... but he is the smallest of the ELEVEN puppies, and the cutest, and the most chill. We are just going to have to brush him daily and wash him weekly, and constantly keep air fresheners going so our apartment will still smell good... but it will be worth it. Goldens are so easy to train, love to play, always gentle, and are the ultimate people pleasers. plus, they are the one type of dog that looks cute when it is a pup, and an adult. :) What will the new puppy's name be....?
